    1. This volume of short stories contains what is most likely my favorite Patrick McManus story of all, the story that shares its name with the book. All in all, this volume of McManus stories is right on par with his many others. It's a bit light on Crazy Eddie Muldoon and Rancid Crabtree stories, my favorite brand of McManus stories, but it is still chock full of the outlandish outdoor adventures that McManus is known for. I think the one difference between this and stories he's done before is the [...]


    2. I never heard of McManus until 1998. I worked in the parts dept. of a Chevy dealership. My job was in the back warehouse overseeing all shipping and receiving, delivery, ordering, and occasionally working the counter. Being in the back by myself, I had a small radio to keep me company. The kind that needed tin foil and just the right amount of tweaking to get a good station. One day, while avoiding commercials, I chanced on NPR's Radio Reader with Dick Estell. The man had a wonderful voice and g [...]


    3. Always good, like revisiting a crazy uncle. I've seen many people complain that "If you've read one McManus, you've read them all." It is true that these can be a bit redundant if you read two back-to-back, but the familiarity of the characters, predicaments and scenery is what makes Ol' Pat comfort food for the nostalgic brain. Going back to Pat's world is like going back to a favorite camping area, even though I've never been to Idaho. I don't think I would fare well in terms of sanity if I di [...]


    4. From the title, I thought this was going to be some kind of farewell book from the author. But it doesn't appear to be, so I'm happy. McManus just gets funnier with age. I don't care how many of the stories are real or how many are made up, I just trust and believe them all.If you're going to read just one, read Cereal Crime. It starts with his best friend Eddie getting a Private Detective kit from a cereal box-top giveaway, then pining away because there weren't any crimes to solve in their lit [...]


    5. Rancid Crabtree became a literary hero. These short stories by Patrick F. McManus were imaginative and informative. I am not so sure that they are all that much of fiction, especially when I get the feeling of "been there, done that". Anyone who has ever held a fishing pole will like these stories. Anyone who hasn't will want to pick one up. After all, not much difference between fishing and hanging out by the water.


    6. In my opinion, the best in a long line of great outdoor humor from Pat McManus. This one had more of a reflective feel perhaps as he enters, "Into the Twlight" of life, while still "Endlessly Grousing." It made me think of my Dad.


    7. I really like McManus. His outdoor adventures with Retch Sweeney, Rancid Crabtree, Crazy eddie Muldoon and his other friends always keep me in stitches. While these stories are good, his previous collections are much better.


    8. I enjoyed the characters, and their world and hope I get the chance to read the story again and/or to read more within the series.My Rating System:* couldn't finish, ** wouldn't recommend, *** would recommend, **** would read again, ***** have read again.


    9. Into the Twilight, Endlessly Grousing is a very funny book. Patrick tells us about his childhood and other fun stories about his life.


    10. This was the first Patrick F. McManus book I read. I loved it! I read all the ones we have and then asked Mom to put on hold some more.





    11. Another hysterically funny collection of short stories by outdoor writer McManus who rivals Patrick Dennis (for absolute zaniness in his characters and their antics) and Charles Dickens (for clever names – the old mountain man, Rancid Crabtree and best buddy, Retch Sweeny for example). Warning: some of the stories can be absolutely painful – the “Uncle Flynn’s Hairy Adventure” made me laugh so hard I felt almost ill.


    12. This book was alright, I didn't enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed many of Patrick McManus' other works. I definitely felt myself getting impatient with it at times and slogging through some of the stories that I found less interesting, and entirely skipping a couple. While I will say that it was an okay read, I will not be keeping the book and I doubt I will ever revisit it.



    13. An excellent read! Although, like Dave Barry, I could see not wanting to read more than a bit at a time of the good Mr. McManus' works, in small chunks his writing is quite a delight. Which of course makes sense, given that these are columns collected from his writings in Outdoor Life and Field and Stream. Highly Recommended!



    14. Library challenge book - so so mix of short stories. Voice was okay for some of them, some just annoyed me and I half skipped through the ones that annoyed me.
